Normally blue smoke means your burning oil. On older cars i would of said one of the pistion rings have gone and is causing oil to be burnt with the air and fuel.

Get it checked out ASAP

check your oil quality and level - smellit and make sure its not contaminated with fuel.

How rich are you running now? Could be just unburned fuel in your exhaust gas and that should be ok if you're running very rich for safety.

What do you think, Boosted 2.0?

rich conditions tend to be grey smoke if this is blueish its probably oil. Could be rings - I would do a dry and wet compression test and a leakdown.

Is your PCV hose (the hose the goes from your valve cover to the intake piping) connected correctly. Ie. it's not connected to the outlet side piping and under pressure?

I have the turbo-performance kit so i have no idea how the hoses were supposed to go. This is what i have:
I have the turbo outlet to the wastegate's bottom inlet. I have the hose that used to be connected from the AEM CAI now connected to the TB/MAF/BOV pipe and i have the bov connected to the small nipple outlet in the intake. the T goes to a boost gauge and the emange pressure sensor.
That's all i have everything else is the same. Should i unhook that hose? or is that just for the SF kit. btw i ahve a GT-S


ok yell at me and tell me how to hook this uo the right way. thanks!

Can you see the actual turbo from underneath the car? You could check for oil leaks from the turbo. Or perhaps the banjo bolts for the oil lines to the turbo.

Also, how many miles do you have on the engine. Could be some engine seals leaking.

All of these can be checked when you look from underneath the car.

If you kept the oil changed very regularly and the level topped up you are probably OK. The main dangers in pressurizing the crankcase are massive oil leaks and reduced power.
